Frequently Asked Questions

How is ChessKid Adventure different from ChessKid?

ChessKid Adventure presents chess to kids in a new and fun way. Our already tried-and-tested features such as live games, puzzles, and lessons are all in the app—but built into a magical world of fantastic creatures. Both ChessKid and ChessKid Adventure are designed to help kids learn, play, and enjoy the game of chess. 

While there are many stylistic differences between ChessKid and ChessKid Adventure, the main difference is that ChessKid Adventure is solely for individuals and is only available on mobile (iOS and Android) devices. On the other hand, ChessKid is built for a broader audience. It works on mobile and web browsers, and both individuals and organizations (such as schools, clubs, associations, etc.) can enjoy it.

If you already know and love the ChessKid app, there is nothing to worry about. We plan to not only keep but also continue to improve both!

Should my kid play ChessKid or ChessKid Adventure?

Let your ChessKid decide! Both apps are built with kids in mind so they can learn and have fun while playing chess. However, if your child has assigned lessons or is part of a club or school-sponsored group, those features are only a part of ChessKid, not ChessKid Adventure. 

Do I need to buy a separate membership for ChessKid Adventure?

No. You can log in to ChessKid Adventure using your ChessKid account. Your Gold Membership on ChessKid will be available to you on ChessKid Adventure.

What is unique about ChessKid Adventure?

Our priority is to make it fun for kids to learn and play chess in all of our apps. ChessKid Adventure takes it to the other level because while chess is still the focal point, kids also get to experience a magical world of animated characters, quests, coins, etc. Their experience becomes more engaging, enhancing their learning experience.

How can I download the ChessKid Adventure app?
